    1 Year Review

    Bought this the day it first came out last Feb of 2017. So I've had this for over year and some change. Love these headphones. Functionality is great. I have it on at work all the time either listening to music or using for work calls. After several months of use, I started to notice that whoever I was speaking to had a hard time hearing me. I guess after using it the band where the MIC sits started to lose it's form and hang away from my mouth. I found that I usually turn left into the MIC for the other end to hear me clearly. Also, the plastic buds that sit in your ear tend to come off. I've lost a few during work and also a trip I made to Europe. The hooks that come with them broke sadly. Which leads me to a 2 star rating. I went to the Apple Store and they said they would have to send in the plastic ear hooks for replacement. They told me it would cost $85! Just for the ear hooks? That's a little over half of the price I paid for. I find it very weird that I can't buy ear buds or ear hooks from Apple directly. I bought a 3rd party ear bud but it's not as good as the Apple version. I was thinking of buying a second pair, but if those ear hooks break or I lose the plastic buds, I'm screwed. Unfortunately, I would not recommend these headphones.

    Cheap.

    Positives: They sound quite nice. Comfortable. Portable.
    Negatives: I've had to replace mine 4 times since I first purchased, they either stop turning on or earpieces break.

    Overall I am pretty disappointed but I love my headphones. It's just that They don't stop breaking.

    Should be better for the name and cost

    Not a good option for weightlifters. Laying on flat bench or decline, they hang back and need readjusted against neck when you sit up. or they fall off onto the floor. Sound cuts out when I raise hands into the air trapping charger part between shoulder and neck. I thought some of these issues was my pair but same problem with replacement pair. Also volume doesn't go very loud at all.

    Beats X - suck for the $$$$$ you pay

    Had for a few months now they wont turn on so you cant reset them. When you pay $$$$ for things you expect them to work. Going back to Boise. Had Boise for a long time & every time I turn them on they work great. Buy Boise save your time and headache

    Sound quality very much lacking

    The sound quality is severely lacking in these. It's all highs and mids, like you're hearing everything thru a brass cone. Better, well-rounded sound and bass in the $30 wired regular Apple earbuds. The sound is even worse if the buds don't fit quite right in your ear. You have to shove them in hard to get a seal just to hear a little bass and that doesn't feel that great, especially if you're using them for awhile.

    I can't compare them to the AirPods because I'm not waiting 6 weeks for a pair of earbuds. Stick with the wired Apple earbuds if you like good sound and don't mind the wires for now. At least till they get things worked out with the sound for the Beats and whatever false-scarcity thing Apple has going on with the AirPods.

    Gets two stars for the slick and painless integration with iOS.

    Loss of sound

    I thought these headphones were the best! Although over the last week the sound has gone quite low (or am I just going deaf?)

    Shorting after second use, Poor quality

    By the second time I used this earphone, the sound kept cutting and randomly during songs it would speed up and then stick. Not to mention the sound quality is not anywhere worth the price. Do better Beats.

    BeatsX Do Not Work in Cold Weather

    If you have any intentions of using Beats X earphones outside in the cold temperatures then forget about these as an option as they do not function in the cold weather. There is NO mention by the manufacturer in the product description or nearly all reviews that they do not function below a specific temperature. A lot of money for useless earphones.

    AWFUL- DO NOT B UY!

    Ok so i got these for xmas and i thot ya these r some gud stuff but i then proceeded to insert the earbud into my ear, which in turn caused the pain receptors in my system to become active and react negatviely to the inseration of the earbud. in simple terms, they hurt my ears. there, thats my review. im sad.

    W1 chip is cool but overall poor quality as an Apple product

    I had them just for 2 months until they broke down and one side became louder than the other.now i’m waiting for repair.. I just used them very regularly for walking, I didn’t do any sports or any high activity with them. The sound chip is excellent. But overall I expect much more from this price range and Apple.. maybe they will improve it with beatsX 2

    Bad Earbuds

    I really don't like these, I had another set before and it might just be that I have odd shaped ears but I just can't seem to get them to stay in. I got these for running and they fall out when I'm just sat still so no chance when I actually run. Very disappointed

    Great, but now won't turn on!

    I've had my Beatsx since August (3-4 months). I really love them. However, they now won't turn on after charging. Did a quick search of the web, and finding this seems to be a problem with the product - just check the forums. Expect better quality for the price paid.

    Easily damaged by moisture

    My second pair now being sent back awaiting replacement. Use these most of the time running here in the Pacific NW and with the rain and sweat the moisture gets in through the power button. These buds sound great to me fit well and don't fall out / snug and have very good life on each charge but it appears I'm not going to be able to use these in workout situations indoors or out. Too bad.

    Doesn’t work properly after time

    I didn’t drop them, over charger them, no water damage, nothing. But for some reason after not even 5 months, they don’t stay on. When I try to turn them on, the light flashes and it won’t turn on. I even reset it multiple times, and it still won’t work. Not happy.

    Maybe I have a bad pair?

    Does anyone else experience static in the background at ALL times? If it's not a static sound it is a very loud chime that requires me to adjust the two black pieces on each side of my neck. I almost have to have them near my Adam's apple in order for the static to go away.

    I love the design and all, but it is annoying to have to hear static every time.

    Disappointed

    I wanted to really love these because the design is beautiful. Easy pairing with my iPhone 7plus. Unfortunately the sound quality is terrible. It sounded distant and as soon as I raised the volume it sounded “tinny” and distorted. Very disappointed with this product.

    Was working until...

    Well, I bought my BeatsX about 4 months ago, and they performed very well... Once while I was walking outside I wanted to turn my BeatsX on by simply holding the start button, but they started flashing and even hard resets didn't help...

    its ok for people that dont like bass

    being a product from Mr Dre i was expecting a much better sound quality, the bass more in particular, it does not beat the Logitech Wireless headset that also has very good battery life in addition that it is half the price. I am not kidding i am going to give it to someone in my family and i will keep n using the logitech device. My main purpose is when i go to the gym and i like Hip Hop music with a great bass sound.
